Malachi 3

- 1. Ha-Adon ('The Lord,' or 'Master') at the end naturally Jehovah.

- 4. How very striking the difference is between the end of Malachi and Revelation 22:17, 20, where, though a Book of judgments, the saint, or Church, returns to its relationships. It strikingly shows the difference of the two principles, of the Old and New Testaments, or Law and Grace. Besides the very nature of the development of the relationship itself is different. In Malachi, He returns and discerns between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth Him not. In Revelation, it is the Church, when the Person of Christ is revealed as the Morning Star, whose heart goes out with desire after the Bridegroom, animated by the Holy Spirit Himself.
